WA Child Research Fund (formerly Telethon – Perth Children’s Hospital Research Fund) – NOW OPEN!

The Department of Health in conjunction with the Channel 7 Telethon Trust is pleased to announce the seventh round of the WA Child Research Fund (formerly the Telethon-Perth Children’s Hospital Research Fund ) is now open for applications for research funding to be awarded in 2019.

The WA Child Research Fund was jointly established by the Department of Health and the Channel 7 Telethon Trust in 2012 to fund health and medical research that focuses on the health of children and adolescents in WA.

Funded research activities may be wide-ranging but must address areas of direct significance to child and adolescent health. Research may include basic, clinical, health service, or population health research.

In addition, for this year, priority areas for funding have been nominated. These include:

  1. WA Health led research;
  2. Projects that utilise and collaborate with past TPCHRF Stream 2 Strategic Research initiatives ; and
  3. Targeted research to address the research needs of the WA Youth Health Policy.

The Department of Health’s closing date is 1:00pm, Wednesday 20 February 2019.
